The club is quite unique in that there is no admission charge despite the fact that there are top rate guests at almost every meeting (we just pass the jug around so you can give as much or as little as you wish a minimum of the price of a pint (around about £3 - £5) is suggested – our aim is always for everyone, guests, audience and floor singers alike to have a really good time.Floor singers are always welcome but we get very busy so we recommend a call or email to reserve a spot, on the night it is very much first come first served – if there is space available.

Geoff Higginbottom

GEOFF HIGGINBOTTOM needs no introduction to regular Festival goers. His formidable style of playing both six and twelve string guitars, bodhran and Appalachian dulcimer to accompany his well-chosen songs is second to none as well as his choice of singing unaccompanied songs. Geoff is confident playing to all types of audiences be they very young or the more mature of audiences and his repartee with hecklers is amazing. Geoff's repertoire includes traditional and contemporary songs on a wide range of subjects and from a variety of sources all performed in a very professional manner. Geoff is also a powerful singer of shanties as well as being a versatile entertainer. In my opinion he is one of the Folk Scene's must underrated good eggs so expect a good sprinkling of songs and some cracking chorus opportunities.
